Human Genome News Archive Edition
Human Genome News, March 1992; 3(6)
Two enhancements to GDB are near completion. (1) Beginning in April, each node will manage its own local user registration so new users can be added more quickly. (2) Users at Baltimore and the remote nodes will be able to use the messaging system to communicate with their local "help" station, GDB editors, and many probe contacts; messages should include the phone number or e-mail address to which the recipient can respond. This message feature, currently available only to Baltimore users, will be included in the next full release of GDB expected this fall.

The Human Genome Project (HGP) was an international 13-year effort, 1990 to 2003. Primary goals were to discover the complete set of human genes and make them accessible for further biological study, and determine the complete sequence of DNA bases in the human genome. See Timeline for more HGP history.
Published from 1989 until 2002, this newsletter facilitated HGP communication, helped prevent duplication of research effort, and informed persons interested in genome research.
